Thursday, November 16, 2017

Comedian Steve Martin's rendition of "King Tut" is triggering social justice warriors at Reed College because they see it as a form of cultural appropriation.

The song, originally performed on "Saturday Night Live," actually criticizes the commercialization and trivialization of Egyptian history and presents a caricature of the Treasures of Tutankhamun traveling exhibit that toured seven United States cities from 1976 to 1979.

Reed College has to be in the Top 10 nationwide in the "SJWs per capita" category. Right now there's a student at Wellesley or Bowdoin reading this story and getting upset that they didn't think of it first.

3 - It was funny in '77. The whole stand up by Martin - "Let's get small" is a classic.
